The trailer opens with Bowser in his massive, fiery castle as he descends on an ice kingdom. It later cuts to hero Mario who flies into the Mushroom Kingdom and encounters Toad.

Fans are given the first glimpse of Pratt’s Mario voice which he previously said is “unlike anything you’ve heard in the Mario world before.”

He told Variety: “I worked really closely with the directors and trying out a few things and landed on something that I’m really proud of and can’t wait for people to see and hear.”

The film is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Shigeru Miyamoto for Nintendo.
